Baby Wipe Technique

Good morning, I haven't had much time for posting the last few days. I have been busy working on projects and of course hanging out with the kids. Today's card is one that we made last night for Stamp Club. I of course wanted to use a few retiring items and decided to use the True Friends Stamp Set. I have been encouraging everyone to pick up reinkers for all the retiring colors so that you can always reink your stamp pads and keep them good for years to come but Reinkers are also great for several techniques including the one we did last night which is a Baby Wipe Technique. This technique is fairly simple. All you need is a paper or styrofoam plate, baby wipes and reinkers. You are going to create your own multicolored stamp pad with these items. Fold the baby wipe in half once and place on your plate. Start with your darkest reinker which for this card was Rose Red. Place three drops on the baby wipe then add your next color (Cameo Coral which is retiring) we placed five or six drops on the wipe and then filled in with the lightest color which was Barely Banana (also retiring). The drops will spread and make a multicolor stamp pad. You then ink up your stamp and stamp as usual. The background and main flower are stamped with the baby wipe. We also used Cameo Coral, Barely Banana, Rose Red and Whisper White Card Stock. The Cameo Coral and Barely Banana are retiring colors and are available while supplies last. The only other item used on the card besides adhesive is Rose Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon which is also on the retirement list. If you would like to purchase the supplies to make this card you can contact me or order them online. Tomorrow I will be back with a Father's Day card that has supplies from the Summer Mini. Have a great day and let me know if you have any questions about any of my projects. Thanks for stopping by, Tonya
